new heat

Back to: Surviving the Devil: A Song of Fire
Poem #11 from the ‘Surviving the Devil’ collection (unpublished)

a river of aluminium flowed
beneath the hulk of our car

engine blocks are only alloy
these days

window frames swam away
and cement sheeting
turned into powder

heat is an old word
we need something new
to describe what ran through us
that day
